Wardrobe Review


Reviewing is an essential part of our lives, as after a while, things sometimes don't feel 'you' anymore. Whether thats because they no longer fit your body shape or your lifestyle, reviewing your wardrobe makes it easier to stay true to your own style.


- If you've not worn a piece in the past year then you're not likely to wear it again. It is time to give it a new home.


- If you're not very good at letting go of things that you never wear, it will be worth your while investing in a wardrobe detox with a stylist. A stylist will hold your hand and make it a lot easier to evolve your wardrobe into one that works for you.


- Do you enjoy wearing it? If you do, it shows, if you don't it is time to wave it goodbye.


- Have you been promising yourself youll lose a couple of pounds and squeeze into that dress again? Chances are therell be a dress out there thats far more flattering for the gorgeous shape you are now!

Wardrobe Romance


Indulge in some match-making when youre organising your wardrobe. See what works with what, if it goes with nothing it might be time for it to find a new home, or for you to invest in something to go with it.


Wardrobe Reward


Treat yourself with a one-in-one-out policy. Having gone through a wardrobe review and detox, reward yourself with new-to-you pieces.
